Run 50 Miles in January
Ready for a brand-new fitness challenge this New Year? Sign up to Run 50 Miles in January.
Completing 50 miles in a month sounds like a lot but you can complete the challenge however you like – whether that’s a few miles a day or by saving up your miles for an epic weekend run. Put in the miles at the gym, at the park or on a run around town, it’s up to you!
Take part to support our Armed Forces community.
Follow the simple steps below:

Your fundraising could help provide emergency accommodation for a veteran in need, food vouchers for a family facing financial hardship, or training for Admiral nurses to provide specialist support and care for a veteran living with dementia.
Membership to a dedicated Facebook group where you’ll find encouragement and support throughout the challenge from an amazing online community
A FREE Poppy Run t-shirt when you register
A mile tracker, sponsorship form and totaliser poster in your registration pack
An RBL Poppy Run medal when you hit £150 in fundraising
